Wests Tigers vs New Zealand Warriors
Date: 24 March 2019
Time: 7:10pm AEST
Venue: Campbelltown Stadium
NRL Round 2
One of the more intriguing matches of the round, purely because both teams won last week yet few footy followers came away too convinced by either performance.
The Tigers did what they were supposed to do, gradually wearing down the Sea Eagles in a mostly dour contest, while the Warriors scored some nice tries en route to putting 40 on the Bulldogs with minimal fuss.
So what should we expect from both sides this week?
Tigers coach Michael Maguire will be seeking improvement in certain areas and Warriors coach Stephen Kearney will try to keep his side focused on defence and let their offence take care of itself.
Head Coach: Michael Maguire
Starting 13: Thompson, Fonua, Momirovski, Marsters, Jennings, Marshall, Brooks, Matulino, Farah, Twal, Matterson, Garner, Taylor – Interchanges: Packer, Mikaele, Aloiai, Chee-Kam – Reserves: Mbye, Reynolds, Eisenhuth, McQueen
Unavailable: David Nofoaluma, Chris Lawrence
Wests Tigers got their season off to a good start under new head coach Michael Maguire as they managed to see off Manly Sea Eagles and will be looking to make it back-to-back home wins.
Moses Mbye is set to return for the Tigers after he missed last week with a knee injury which could see Corey Thompson revert to the wing although the Tigers skipper has only been named amongst the reserves at the minute.
If he does come into the side as expected, Mahe Fonua is set to make way on the wing to accommodate Thompson’s switch whilst Josh Reynolds is set to take to the field in reserve grade in an effort to prove his worth to Michael Maguire.
NEW ZEALAND WARRIORS
Head Coach: Stephen Kearney
Starting 13: Tuivasa-Sheck, Fusitu’a, Hiku, Kata, Maumalo, Keighran, Green, Paasi, Roache, Afoa, Blair, Harris, Burr – Interchanges: Tevaga, Lisone, Ah Mau, Papali’i – Reserves: Beale, Harris-Tavita, Luke, Sao
New Zealand Warriors produced the most impressive performance of Round 1 as they scored 40 points to hammer Canterbury Bulldogs but will be keen to carry on where they left off last week in their first away game of the year.
The Warriors are boosted by the return of Isaiah Papali’I after he was stood down for the Round 1 clash with the Bulldogs and he is named on the bench in place of Blake Ayshford who doesn’t even make the reserves.
Issac Luke could also return after he was named amongst the reserves with head coach Stephen Kearney set to make a late decision on whether to include the rake or allow him another week’s recovery.
THE PREDICTION New Zealand Warriors will be looking to back up their superb Round 1 performance as they take on Wests Tigers. The Tigers were also winners in their season opener and that sets this up to be an intriguing contest. The Warriors don’t always travel well but this is a good chance following last week’s performance. Debutant half Adam Keighran could be the key alongside Blake Green with the rookie producing a great display last week and if he can follow that up here, he can guide his side to victory.
